Meet the Team Series - Jessica Baird Walsh

I’m one of the co-founders of Remote Social. My title is CEO, but in an early-stage startup no two days look the same for founders. At our stage there are more roles than people so it’s a constant juggling act. Right now I’m spending a lot of time fundraising, speaking to investors and customers, and hiring.

Fun fact: I grew up on an organic farm in the middle of nowhere, without a television, so there’s some serious irony to the fact that I now work in tech.

Background

My career has been very diverse. I’ve worked in media, events, not for profit and startups. This has given me broad experience in a range of roles, and insights into different industries. Diversity of my experience has been incredibly helpful now I am running my own business, in a role that requires me to wear many hats. For anyone interested you can read more about my background and career journey, and how it prepared me to become a founder, here.  

I’ve also lived and worked around the world, which has contributed a lot to my perspective and my strong desire to connect people through our products.

Favourite game, activity, or feature on the Remote Social Hub:

Asking me to choose a favourite feature on Remote Social is like asking me to choose a favourite child! I love trivia, and the hosted experiences marketplace is my baby, but we have so many amazing features in our roadmap that I can’t wait to roll out.

What does your home office setup look like?

I have three young children and a puppy, so my home office is crazy!

Are you wearing sweatpants or PJs right now? Be honest - we’re not judging.

Jeans FTW!

What do you enjoy most about working with the Remote Social team?

It’s a privilege to be building Remote Social from scratch with a talented and passionate team. I am so proud that the team is growing and attracting amazing humans. Also, my cofounders are hilarious.

If you could have a superpower, what would it be?

Teleportation would be at the top of my list.
